Hello, and welcome to the Official Rules ("Rules") of the ChangeMint Ultimate VIP Experience
(hereafter the "Contest"). This Contest is designed to allow people to recognize and reward the Everyday Heroes on the front lines of "doing good" in the world! To do that, nominate yourself (or someone else) and then ask your friends and family to vote for you in the Contest. The individual with the most votes wins the Grand Prize of the ChangeMint Ultimate VIP Experience in Las Vegas, NV! Everyone that finishes in the top ten in voting wins a prize, so every vote counts! You'll also be helping raise money to support this great cause. Below are all the rules. Please read carefully and let's go have some fun!
By participating in the Contest, you attest that You have affirmatively reviewed, accepted, and agreed to all Official Rules and Regulations contained herein.
ChangeMint LLC (hereafter "ChangeMint," "Sponsor," "we," "us").
This Contest is open only to legal residents of the USA (except for residents of Colorado
, North Dakota
), ages 21 years or older as of the date of entry, and who fulfill all Contest requirements. The Contest is subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations and as always, is VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. Before receiving any prize, all Winners must complete and return a publicity and liability release.
The Grand Prize Winner's chosen guest (the "Travel Companion") must also be 21 years or older before the commencement of travel (you're going to Vegas, after all!). The Grand Prize Winner and Travel Companion are responsible for obtaining all necessary travel authorizations or documentation required to travel (e.g. passports or other TSA accepted identification) and be able to travel to Las Vegas, NV on the dates specified by Sponsor (the "Travel Dates") and on the same itinerary. For clarity, this means the Travel Companion must be able to travel with the Grand Prize Winner on the same flights to and from Las Vegas. If you are unable to travel to Las Vegas on the Travel Dates, you will unfortunately forfeit the Grand Prize. Your Travel Companion must also complete and return a publicity and liability release prior to departure.
